Kenton Schools Cafeteria Supervisor Talks About End of Free to All Lunch Program
The recent announcement that the USDA is ending the free lunch for all program at the end of this school year has some people confused.
Many think that no free lunches will be offered.
Kenton City Schools Cafeteria Supervisor Regina Comstock said however, it only means that starting this fall the program will go back to the way it was before the pandemic, “We have to go back to qualifying basically, each student, based on their income and their family size. So we’re back to free and reduced applications that parents and families will need to fill out to see if they qualify for a free meal, a reduced meal or a full pay meal, so it’s based on status.”
For more on that program as well as on the summer lunch program starting later this month, listen to the complete conversation with Comstock on Public Eye tomorrow morning at 7:30 and Sunday at noon on WKTN.
